As Payday 3’s player count continues to crash into nothingness, those that remain are still eagerly awaiting the deployment of this enormous first patch that should address a plethora of issues being experienced in the game that was released just last month. In a recent blog post, the game’s developer, Starbreeze, has offered an update on… Well, the update.
‘It’s Not Easy To Communicate’
Starbreeze kicked things off with an apology – but at least this one wasn’t written by an AI. Following a showing of remorse for not having been present on socials for a few days, Starbreeze got into the core of the update – the arrival of the first patch for Payday 3.
In a one-line update, it was explained:
The first patch has been sent off and is currently going through a testing and certification process. We have made a commitment to our players to keep parity between all platforms, so this is an important part of that process.
It was revealed that Starbreeze’s developers ‘discovered critical errors’ in their update pipeline that crippled their ability to roll out this patch earlier. It was then said that, in the future, changes will be made to make the developer more resilient and reliable when it comes to patching out issues in the game.
Once we can consistently deliver patches, the team will also deliver on our plans for more content for the game. Expect to see free content updates for the game before the end of the year, we’ll share more information on what these will be when we get there.
So, by way of a further apology, Starbreeze will be providing a series of free content updates over the next couple of months before the end of the year.
